NYSC may stop corps members from elections
By Bukola Amusan, Abuja
Corps members may not be allowed to serve as adhoc workers in governorship and local government elections if there is no guarantee for their safety and welfare.
The Director-General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig-Gen Nnamdi Okore Affia, spoke when the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC), Prof Attahiru Jega, visited him in Abuja.
He said: “We cannot continue to jeopardise the investment parents make on their wards on the altar of insecurity.
“We cannot continue risking their lives; killing of corps members is not part of the agenda of the scheme.”
Jega said he visited the NYSC headquarters to secure the use of the corps members as ad hoc staff during the governorship and local government polls.
He said since national integration is one of the motives of the scheme, the corps members should be involved in the election process.
Brig-Gen Affia said unless grey areas in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by the scheme before the commencement of the April elections is revisited and adjusted, the NYSC may be forced to prevent the corps members from participating in the exercise.
The NYSC DG said the death of some corps members during the last elections left some indelible marks on the scheme that may not be easily erased.

If corp member are not used in future elections, then State like Bauchi (kill 8 corp members in the April election ) that have no regards for corper will use Almajiri as their returning offficer.
